Architect or interior designer, each has their own area of responsibility and skills in construction and architecture.

The interior designers concentrate on the spatial structuring, utilization and design of the interior spaces.

Architects and interior designers use their creative skills to create aesthetically pleasing and functional work, residential or industrial buildings that meet the needs of their clients. They work closely with their clients to understand their ideas, needs and budgets and incorporate them into the planning.

Both architects and interior designers have a solid technical knowledge of building codes, construction techniques, materials and project processes. They must consider structural and technical aspects to ensure that their designs are safe, functional and sustainable. In addition, they often work with a team of other professionals, such as structural engineers, contractors and tradespeople, to successfully implement the design.
